Tribute to McQueen

Alexander McQueen - Plato's Atlantis from SHOWstudio on Vimeo.

It came as quite a shock to me to hear about the death of (Lee) Alexander McQueen's death. He was one of my favorite designers, though I am unable to afford his work. His shock-and-awe factor and how he pushed the envelope in the fashion world, as well as his references in anatomy and Darwin's Origin of the Species, provided me with inspiration and appreciation for symbolism and the thought process behind creating art. So in ode of one creative genius, I provide you with a few anatomical designs by Alexander McQueen.

I don't normally care about fashion in that way, but that runway video was fascinating! I couldn't look away at everything - the music and set design was so deliberate and thought out, and created such an environment - wonderful! I am also surprised that no one fell on their ass with those shoes on, daaaaammmn!

I'm glad you liked the post! I agree about the shoes, though they are very interesting, they had to be a pain to walk in. It is unfortunate how such a creative man would decide to take his own life, such a tragedy.
